Dolomites Bike Day
Ride three fantastic traffic free passes on the Dolomites Bike Day.
The 2022 Dolomites Bike Day will be held on June 25th and allows cyclists of all abilities to enjoy closed roads on three giant passes set in some of the most wonderful scenery on earth. Crossing the Passo Campolongo, Passo Falzarego and Passo Valparola on the same roads used by the Giro d’Italia and the Maratona dles Dolomites this is an amazing opportunity to ride without traffic, surrounded by other cyclists doing the same thing you love. With no pressure to complete the ride in a fast time, it is a day to simply enjoy life on two wheels and soak up the stunning scenery of the Dolomites. The event is free, there’s no need to sign up just bring your bike and enjoy swinging through hairpin bends, cresting giant passes, and swooping down breathtaking descents all on car-free roads for just one lap or maybe more.
The route is composed of a 51km loop linking the towns of San Cassiano, La Villa, Corvara and Arabba via three fantastic mountain passes. Riding anticlockwise the first climb on the route is the Passo Campolongo with its series of 13 fantastic switchbacks set in the first two kilometres. After the fast descent through Arabba you continue to lose altitude until you hit the valley floor before embarking on the toughest climb of the route, the Passo Falzarego. Never too steep but quite long at close to 12 kilometres it is a wonderful journey through hairpins and tunnels to the cafés at the summit. To complete the 1370 metres of climbing you must now reach the top of the Passo Valparola which in places is as steep as 15% before rocketing down the exhilarating descent to La Villa and finish on the gradual climb to close the loop back in Corvara.
